It is demonstrated how model checking can be used to verify safety properties for event-driven systems. SCR tabular requirements describe required system behavior in a format that is intuitive, easy to read, and scalable to large systems (e.g. the software requirements for the A-7 military aircraft). Model checking of temporal logics has been established as a sound technique for verifying properties of hardware systems. An automated technique for formalizing the semiformal SCR requirements and for transforming the resultant formal specification onto a finite structure that a model checker can analyze has been developed. This technique was effective in uncovering violations of system invariants in both an automobile cruise control system and a water-level monitoring system
